On March 3, an N.C. State Highway Patrol officer conducted a traffic stop of a 2019 Toyota around 10:26 p.m. for a left-of-center violation on US 74B. The driver was identified as Cawthorn. It was determined that his license was revoked and he was charged. His court date will be on May 6 in Shelby.
